What is Binance Smart Chain
The Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is a smart contract-enabled blockchain parallel to Binance Chain that provides a permissionless platform for decentralized applications (DApps). The Binance Smart Chain is owned by Binance. The BSC network has experienced significant growth since its unveiling in April 2020 and is now one of the largest blockchains on a global scale. Binance Smart Chain has a BEP20 token standard that functions similarly to Ethereum’s ERC20 standard. Arguably, the easiest way to access the BSC is using the Trust Wallet DApp Browser .With just a few steps, you can easily access BSC using Trust Wallet.
In this article, you will learn how to connect your Trust Wallet to Binance Smart Chain.
